The European IComply project, in which the ENIC-NARIC Centre France is participating, was launched at the beginning of May. The project, coordinated by the Dutch recognition centre NUFFIC, unites France, Italy, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Denmark and Norway.
Developed as part of the “theme group for peer support on national legislation and qualification recognition compliance procedures with the Lisbon Convention,” co-presided by France, Italy and Albania, this project aims to develop the practices of recognition centres and to improve their compliance with the Lisbon Convention.
Amongst the eight partner countries, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Estonia and Lithuania will carry out a detailed assessment of their procedures, their practices and their organisation, with the help of assessment tools that have been developed thanks to the FAIR project. From this assessment, a road map will point out the improvements that each country will undertake to develop by 2020.
France, Denmark and Norway make up the steering committee for the project. They will bring their experience and an external opinion on the processes to be improved.
It is expected that the project will give rise to three Peer Learning Activities in order to support the five countries to implement the necessary activities to successfully complete these improvements. These activities must also allow partner countries to involve national stakeholders linked to mobility and to support higher education institutions with the improvements to be implemented in order to facilitate automatic recognition.
